Hi all. I haven't posted here for a while, since I mainly use BIAB for songwriting and use instruments played by my producer and myself on my recordings. But this week I dredged up an old song that I still like and tried it out with some RealTracks (I forget which style, classy something, jazz piano, bass, and drums). It sounded good so I brought in Roger to add a clean hollow-body electric part. The vocal is still a bit rough and the mix needs work, but I decided to share since this is 75% BIAB, which still amazes me. Wonderful product. Time to upgrade and get some fresh styles!

Comments are welcome.

Thanks,
Bruce Irving

Good job. BIAB is truly amazing, isn't it! Thanks for sharing.

Janice said she could dance in the kitchen while listening to this: Translation -> good song! Mellow but also has a bit of an edge.
Could hear Diana Krall doing this number.

Thanks for the listen and for the kind comments. For reference (since I now realize we should provide these sorts of details), here's what I used on this track.

Tempo is 100 bpm
Style _J085_BD Classy easy swing ballad (85 RS)
~481 Bass, acoustic jazz
~487 Piano, acoustic jazz ballad
RD JazzBrushesSticks

The guitar is a Gretsch hollow-body, not sure of the specific type, played clean into the Cakewalk UA-1G USB audio interface I use for recording (PC is Toshiba Qosmio X775 lap-crusher if you're interested). The DAW is Sonar X1 (d I think). I imported the rendered, normalized audio tracks from BIAB to Sonar and used them mostly straight, though I actually imported three different "takes" from BIAB. I mostly used the third take but grabbed a few bars of piano from the other takes for parts that went better with the melody at some point.

I also imported the RealDrums MIDI track and used that for guidance in adding a few strategic cymbal hits using the jazz kit from EZDrummer.

I'm not a jazz singer and I don't think I'm getting the right swing feel in this vocal. I will try a few more takes when my allergies subside. I was listening to some Sinatra in the car last night for inspiration.

Hi Bruce,

I found this a very pleasant, easy-to-listen-to song. In fact, I'm going back for another listen right now!

All the best,
Noel

Sounds great to me!

Your vocal is super so I would say that you could pass as a jazz singer.

Great lounge music!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
